The annual Wexford Winter League had lift-off last Friday evening in Enniscorthy. This was the first of three legs, the next one being on Friday, Nov 15 and the final one Nov 22. There was a fantastic turnout despite the freezing temperatures. Those athletes who won on Friday will be hoping for repeat performances at the next two legs as there is an award for each athlete who bags three wins. Indeed, there is a medal for everyone who takes part on all three nights.
